With its four-year focus «Art, Science and Technology», Pro Helvetia fosters transdisciplinary exchange and collaboration between arts practitioners on the one hand and science and technology professionals on the other.

Various promotion formats (residencies, research grants, production grants, etc.) invite participants to explore the potential of mutual inspiration and open up spaces for new artistic approaches. The formats of this programme are developed in close cooperation with well-established scientific institutions and are aimed at Swiss practitioners from all arts disciplines.

Goals 2021-2024

  • Connecting arts and culture practitioners with practitioners from the fields of science and technology.
  • Active promotion of projects at the interface of art, science and technology by means of support in the planning, research and production stages
  • Support in Switzerland and abroad for Swiss arts and culture practitioners working at the interface of art, science and technology

What organisations are active at the intersection of art, science and technology? What residency opportunities are available? What kind of festivals are there? What kind of Think Tanks? How can I find an organisation that combines music and biology?

The «Art, Science and Technology Directory» was created to help you browse through and discover more than 600 organisations in the areas of responsibility of the Pro Helvetia liaison offices as well as in Europe and in Northern and Central America, that operate across the boundaries of disciplines.

Is your organisation missing or do you know of more organisations at the intersection of art, science and technology?

You are welcome to contact us. Your submission will be reviewed by the project team and added to the directory if it meets their criteria. The directory will be updated regularly.
